My swap partner said she liked retro, fashion, shabby chic, and pink. I only had to choose one of these themes. I managed to squeeze all four onto my chunky ATC.
I love this tiny dress form. I covered it with the smallest buttons I could find and filled in the gaps with a chunky glitter. The vintage head pins I found at an estate sale.
An old Artchix studio graphic I colored in with colored pencils adorns this side.
This tag came from a piece of clothing that has long since left my wardrobe. I couldn't even tell you what it was, but I held on to the fabric tag for years. How's that for craft hoarding?! It was hard for me to use the tag, but it fit the theme perfectly.
A Melissa Frances sticker, remnant rubs, and Prima flowers on this side.
The top got a handmade flower and some vintage leaf buttons. You can't tell, but I did decorate the bottom and used some pearls from a vintage necklace to make the ATC stand up.
I know they sell wooden blocks just the right size for chunky ATC's but since I was mailing this I wanted it to be light. I ended up upcycling the box my business cards arrived in. I stuffed it full of old tissue paper to give it more stability.
These are the photos the recipient posted. She loved it. Whew!
I can't wait to see what I get in return.
